Others who could make a top 5 list include Homer Bailey, Cameron Maybin, Andrew McCutchen, Nick Adenhart, and Chris Volstad

How many players that attended your showcase been taken in the amateur
There’s has been only 2 drafts that Aflac players have been eligible for. 2006 will be the third draft. Many players are drafted, but perhaps the most astounding is the number of early selections. In those first two years, 18 Aflac All Americans were selected in the first round. Several others went in the second round. The percentages, so far, show that 1 of every 4 Aflac All Americans have become a first round draft pick
